Bayern Munich are reportedly in the hunt for Stuttgart striker Mario Gomez.
The Germany international could not live up to his potential with his national team and was a complete failure at the Euro 2008.
"There is a clause in his contract which gives us the possibility to bring him here, possibly within the next year," said Bayern Munich's chairman of the board Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.
Defending German champions Bayern already have strikers Lukas Podoliski, Luca Toni, and Miroslav Klose on their roster.
Mario Gomez was chosen as Germany's Player of the Year in 2007.
